Josefina Dominguez Perez(March 17, 1927 ~ August 15, 2013)

Josefina Dominguez Perez "Nana" March 17, 1927 ~ August 15, 2013 Nana was 86 years old when she was carried by angels into heaven to be with our Lord and Savior on August 15, 2013. She was greeted by her Husband Daniel Perez, the Love of her life along with her 2 sons Paul and Frank Perez where they became united once again. She was our Matriarch who set a perfect example. She was a homemaker and mother of 9 children. She was a Strong woman of faith who devoutly praised Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Nana's warm affectionate touch, sneaky smile, unconditional love and forgiving heart will never be forgotten. Her compassionate and silly sense of humor touched the lives of many in countless ways. Josefina lived for her Children and Grandchildren. She enjoyed reading her bible, cooking her traditional dishes, sewing, watering her plants & flowers and going to church. We will forever remember special holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas at Nana's and will continue her tradition of displaying the manger with baby Jesus. Josefina is survived by her loving daughters, Licha Ortega and son in law Homero Ortega, Antonia Hernandez and son in law Ernesto Hernandez, Lupe Moreno and son in law Alejandro Moreno, Clara Perez, Emma Cano and Juvenal Reyes, Juanita Perez Behill; her loving son, Alberto Perez and daughter in law Cecelia Perez; 27 Grandchildren, 59 Great grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild along with numerous nieces, nephews, friends and relatives.
